Post

Back to the top

Corrado callipers, Audi 80 GTE carriers, Mk2 16v discs & pads,

I've got a big brake upgrade for Mk1 golf/caddy/cabby/Jetta for sale here,

Uses corrado callipers, mk2 golf 16v discs and pads, and calliper carriers from an Audi 80 GTE - the complete kit of everything you need to put big brakes on your Mk1.

Callipers have new slide pins,
Discs and pads done about 2000 miles

Getting hard to find these parts now

150 for the whole lot collected, post will be expensive due to weight.

Take it easy ; )

256mm front brake upgrade

Well i could do with some advice on this as originally was told that 256 discs was a nice easy upgrade.. but seems the required scirocco/audi carriers etc are mega money/rare. Then theres the Vauxhall Vectra route but again these parts are pretty rare now.
